Outcast Brewing No. 2 Trhopical Paradise American IPA at 6.0% ABV (C$4.23 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 29-Jan-2019, acquired 13-Feb-2019, reviewed 17-Feb-2019)

Appearance: opaque pale gold with two fingers of rocky ivory head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: stone and tropical fruits, pale malt, light pine. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, moderate tart. (9/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-soft carbonation, off-dry moderate bitter and tart finish. (4/5)

Woof. Total juice bomb, aided by the addition of real apricot and passionfruit. And not in small amounts, either: the label claims “the equivalent of close to a pound of fruit”. And when you consider that the can contains pretty much a pound of beer, well, I guess that means there’s no alcohol or anything else here, right? I’m going with “it’s healthy”, and am tempted to make it a breakfast drink. (17/20)
